Our hosts start out sharing the difficulties of working in the performing arts and why they have all had thoughts of leaving, and the brighter side of why they don’t and why they love what they do. Josh spends time catching up with an old friend, Karra Beach. They talk about her journey in and outside of the industry, engaging students in the performing arts, deeper engagement with their Broadway subscribers, the complexities of Broadway contracts, and more. We also learn that there is very little Josh won’t do for theatre (allegedly).
Karra Beach is the Director of Broadway Engagement Programs at The Overture Center in Madison, Wisconsin (https://www.overture.org/)
